You have to set it all up as root first, log in as root and go through
the printer configuration. Then print a test page, and then log in as
User, and it should work.

I had much the same problem with an Epson C43UX, but when I did
everything through the root GUI, and printed the test page, I could log
out of root and print with it as user. I did add the user into the
lpadmin permissions earlier
